    Description

    Year Long Writing Fun! You'll definitely want to grab these 17 banners! Wow... save big with this fun bundle. It has holiday writing prompts and seasons too! Kids have LOVED my original posters for years, so I took those engaging posters and reformatted them into original collage style banners. Now these banners are a huge hit too.

    I spent a great deal of time creating these collage style banners. I think the arrangement of the overlapping images and writing spaces give the pennants a fun and creative look.

    I love to teach about or review the holidays/seasons because these topics are so easy for the kids to connect with. When they can connect, you get some great ideas.

    If you are looking for fun holiday and seasonal writings to use throughout the year, this is the pack for you! You and your students are going to love the finished product. They are easy to use with little to no prep required. This bundled pack of themed writing pennant banners will get your kids writing, plus they will dress up your classroom and hallway each month for the entire year. There are enough banners so that you can change them out at least once a month. Go below to read the entire list of holidays and seasons below, as well as the writing prompts on each pennant.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I should go ahead and tell you to prepare yourself for compliments. :-) That's right! No... really! Teachers tell me all the time how parents and other teachers compliment them on their hallway and bulletin board displays. I have gotten lots of compliments myself.

    A few of my favorite comments are:

    "These banners are so cute, and they always brighten up my room! Great product!" ~Xochilt P.

    "These look awesome in my hallway- a definite favorite activity!!!"~ Carrie W.

    "Great way to get my students to write creatively and thoughtfully! Also made a beautiful decoration for the classroom!" ~Maritza L.

    "Great product! I used it for this year's Open House and it looked fantastic!" ~ Aileen

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    By purchasing the bundle of writing prompt pennants, you save money. It's like getting 5 (yes, 5!!) for FREE when compared to buying them individually.

    Please click each of the titles below to be taken to the individual listings in this bundle. You will be able to see each banner and the colored pieces included. I have listed the writing topics below.

    At the time of this listing, there are 17 banners included, but if I decide to create any more single holiday or seasonal banners, I will add them to this bundle. There are no guarantees I will add more, but if I do, you'll get them as a bonus. :-) It will only include holidays/seasons pennants.

    BONUS.... Banner Book Covers: That's right! It's a fun and original way to create a book. Create a book with the banner pieces. When you purchase this bundle, you will also get cover page pennant pieces to turn your banners into a book. How does that work? After you display the banners each month, simply keep the banner pieces until the end of the year. Just stick them in a file with the students' names. Once you have all of the banners completed for the year, give the kids a cover page to color. There are covers that say "My Banner Book", "Pretty Pennant Pages" and more. If grade levels are included on the banner covers, I only included 3rd, 4th, and 5th, because those are the grades this pack is most suitable for. There are a few covers with no grade listed. Parents will LOVE the writing keepsake that you send home at the end of the year. At the end of the year, the students will put the pages in order based on seasons/holidays and then staple the cover to the top.

    *******If you are unsure about what is included or if you have questions, please ask BEFORE you buy. My ratings are very important to me. I want to make sure you have all of your answers before making the purchase. That way we are both happy :-) It's my goal to please. Thank you ahead of time. ***********

    NOTE~~~~ At this time, a summer season banner is NOT included.

    Each of the 17 banner packs in this bundle have a front side and a back side. The front side has themed images and writing prompts. The back side has additional writing paper for a paragraph or short story.

    In addition, there are colorful themed banner pieces to add to your class banner. This will add color and pizzazz to your display.
